Thanks for the link kdc I'll look into that.
I went back to the office today to return the stuff the school borrowed and has been sitting in my house since June. I dressed up to keep my confidence (trick my friend taught me in high school) and I listened to the audio version of a fiction book that makes me feel better about myself last night (preety much all night since Ver2 woke up at 3 and snuggled on the couch with me until 5 or 6. I went to bed at 7am).
I just can't be mean, I'm still going to volunteer. I did let my former boss know I felt weird that he was asking me to do the stuff they didn't feel I was really qualified for at the promotions interview, namely training people. He got a horrid look on his face like he couldn't believe that and still says the whole interview was the weirdest thing for him and he has no idea what happened. The guy that got it is an old friend, so it's really hard to be pissed at him, even if he has my sweet customized laptop I bought for the job.
Anyway, there is an Americorp position to get back in with the group, it's actually out of New Hampshire at FIRST headquarters, but I'd get my old office back. I'm going to apply, maybe I'll finally go get a Masters, in something, I don't know. I'm leaning towards physics or engineering, with maybe a teaching certificate for K-12 STEM, I'm not sure. More of an idea than I've had in the last decade.
Either that or I could keep trying to get a national park/science center/museum job. That sounds neat too. Oh and I'm looking at a couple tech writing or game developer positions, you know, just because.
